He’s already doing that. LSU has a home-and-home series scheduled with Texas and Notre Dame in the coming years. Mainieri said at the Houston College Classic that he’d like to return to the event.
LSU’s pre-conference non-SEC schedule is set for 2016 and 2017. The Tigers host Cincinnati, Sacramento State, Fordham and Ball State in 2016. They host Air Force, Maryland, Hawaii and Wichita State in 2017. Mainieri said he may attempt to move the Wichita State series in 2017 so the Tigers could return to the Houston College Classic.
An Old Fashioned at a spot in downtown called the Honeymooners. It’s a great classic diner that’s been turned into an upscale cocktails bar.
You won’t find a better Old Fashioned or a more entertaining scene at 2 a.m. (3 a.m. with the blasted time change) from the Honeymooners window seat as intoxicated patrons pour from the downtown bars. Here’s both:
There is zero science involved.
I’m not sure what exactly you want to know, but here’s a rundown of the first and second units:
- OLB: Deion Jones (Donnie Alexander)
- MLB: Kendell Beckwith (Clifton Garrett)
- OLB: Lamar Louis (Duke Riley)
The Tigers are down two linebackers from where they want to be. They moved Devin Voorhies from safety to linebacker to pad the position. The starters, though, should be good.
Beckwith hit his stride midway through last season, and Louis is a solid outside linebacker. Deion Jones’ position could be a competitive spot.
Well, I’m not sure it completely left town. I do realize that former DC John Chavis made the Mustang famous, but don’t forget that Kevin Steele and Chavis are good friends who share some of the same schematic ideas.
We asked defensive back Dwayne Thomas about the Mustang package after Tuesday’s practice. Two spring drills in, he said the team hasn’t gotten to it yet, but he sounded like they will have a six-defensive back set with him rushing off of the edge.
So don’t completely kiss the Mustang goodbye.
Nope. And don’t expect him to just pop up at some point. Coach Les Miles made it pretty clear Saturday that Valentine had failed to complete an academic requirement, and LSU isn’t “counting on him.”
What’s that mean? Sure sounds like he’s suspended.
Most around the program feel as if he’ll qualify, but there’s no guaranteeing that. In fact, on or around signing day some recruiting services reported that Valentine-Okeke was not on pace to qualify and that’s why some schools – namely Auburn – backed off.
He must gain credit hours and improve his test scores, 247sports reported.
In these situations, there’s no way to know for sure until the summer arrives and the grades are in. Sit tight.
